Olearia X Haastii Hedging

Olearia x haastii (Daisy Bush)

The glaucous leaves of Olearia x haastii are light green on the top surface with a felted underside, in mid summer the plants are smothered in masses of small, yellow centred daisy like flowers. This is a tough and hardy shrub with a naturally bushy habit of growth that will make a fine windbreak or informal hedge in any sunny and well drained site, especially by the sea where the plants are unaffected by the strong, salt laden winds.

Olearia x haastii is useful not only for hedging, they fit perfectly into mediterranean themes and would associate nicely with all types of silvery plants too. Like all evergreen shrubs, Olearia x haastii can make a good structure plant in your garden design providing height and interest through all seasons. The flowers are a good food source for pollinating insects including bees.

We supply well established young plants in 2 litre pots that are equally suited to growing as shrubs or as a hedge.
